A bit of a hack of course, but you can enclose the code that should be
commented out with ''' and ''' or """ and """ (not sure about the name of
this tripple-quoting)
OTOH, some (or even most if not all) Python editors support blockquoting
by pushing a button or using shortcuts. SPE and IDLE for example.
